Kativik Regional Police Force officers have seized money, drugs and drug paraphernalia and have arrested one person following the search of a Kangiqsualujjuaq home.

“It’s a relief for me to know that these drugs are off the streets,” said Cpt. Maxime Mercier in an April 14 news release announcing the seizure.

“During this pandemic, citizens should concentrate on their health and well-being.”

Police responded to a call for service at the residence on April 13 where, upon their arrival, they noticed drugs left out in plain sight.

The officers then applied for a search warrant and executed it, searching the home for other drugs and illegal items.

According to the release, they seized a total of $760 in cash, 518 grams of cannabis, 22 methamphetamine pills, nine syringes containing a translucent liquid, a glass container of white powder, as well as other drug paraphernalia.

The police arrested and detained one individual who faces numerous drug charges.

The accused was set to appear before the court via telephone on April 14.

Any information concerning suspicious activities, including the illegal sale of drugs and alcohol, can be disclosed anonymously to Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-711-1800. Information received may qualify for a reward of up to $2,000.

    Bravo to the bust…hsss to the drug trafficker and should get a stiff sentence for bring drugs that can kill a person. Deadly drugs are here in the north and we should continue to educate our people about the effects that we should not want for anyone.

    Hopefully the justice system will serve him right. No slap on the hand or community hours. Send him to the big boys jail.
